Chip Shot: Intel and OHSU Collaboration Cancer Cloud Open to Developers

Intel and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) announced the Collaborative Cancer Cloud, a precision medicine analytics platform that allows hospitals and research institutions to securely share patient genomic, imaging, and clinical data for potentially lifesaving discoveries. Intel announced that key technology components of the Collaborative Cancer Cloud (CCC) will be opened sourced. The first technology releases will be made available to the developer community in Q1’16. Hospitals and research institutions of all sizes could use the technology to advance cancer research. They can also apply it to advance research in other diseases that have a genetic component, including Alzheimer’s, diabetes, Autism and more. Intel and OHSU also announced that they will partner with two other large cancer institutions to extend this capability in Q1’16.
